Lancope Webinar: Cyber Security Lessons from Fort Knox
Complimentary webinar to help enterprises bolster their network defenses
ATLANTA, October 8, 2012 – Lancope, Inc., a leader in flow-based security and network performance monitoring, will discuss how organizations can take a page from physical security to defend their networks during a webinar entitled “The Network Security School of Fort Knox.” Taking place on Thursday, October 18 at 11:00 a.m. ET / 8:00 a.m. PT, the complimentary webinar will demonstrate how lessons from the world’s most fortified vault can help reduce risks on computer networks. Those interested can register at: http://www.lancope.com/news-events/webinars/the-network-security-school-of-fort-knox/.
Officially known as the United States Bullion Depository, Fort Knox has long been regarded as the most secure facility in the world. Like most networks today, Fort Knox boasts a hardened layer of perimeter security to keep outsiders from intruding, however, the top threat to the facility is not outsiders, but malicious insiders. The facility therefore also needs to monitor for suspicious activities being conducted inside its gates, just as IT administrators should be doing on their internal networks.
By collecting and analyzing NetFlow, IPFIX and other types of flow data with advanced monitoring solutions like Lancope’s StealthWatch® System, organizations can achieve the comprehensive, internal network visibility needed to swiftly detect malicious traffic. In addition to in-depth analysis capabilities, StealthWatch also offers advanced features including application, identity, mobile and virtual awareness to further enhance threat intelligence and network protection.
With the right combination of technologies and incident response procedures, organizations can dramatically tighten their network security and fend off advanced attacks including botnets, insider attacks and APTs. Join this webinar to learn how the impenetrable security measures of Fort Knox can be used as a model for protecting today’s government and enterprise environments:
